It’s fair to say that the opening of Wereham’s new village hall was a bit of a big deal.
A small band of local residents had decided some years previously that the village was in desperate need of a new community facility. Showing incredible dedication and determination, they didn’t stop until significant funds had been raised, plans had been put into place and their hopes had become reality.
A Vibrant, Welcoming Logo
Lingo worked collaboratively with the Wereham Village Hall Committee to develop branding, literature, signage and a website prior to the opening of their innovative Passivhaus village hall, a first of its kind in the UK.
To start with, a vibrant logo was needed to welcome people to their new hall. Taking direction from the committee, bright contrasting colours, a highly legible typeface and simple people icons were used in the design, positioned neatly beneath an apex shape taken directly from original architects drawings.
Taking Hall Bookings Online
A primary feature of the website was a hall hire booking facility that would allow ‘simple’ room bookings to be made and paid for online. More complex bookings could be funnelled through to the booking secretary thanks to an online questionnaire which sorted those requiring a more hands-on approach.
The site also acts as a portal for local residents and includes community-based content including information about events, community groups and local activities which can be easily edited by hall staff or committee members.
The Lingo team was delighted to be involved in this endeavour and invited the village hall committee to become part of our ‘Good Causes’ community discount scheme which allowed them to access many of our services (such as training and ongoing support) for free or at a discounted rate.
